The interior of that building is so grand and elegant, just like the Stalinist skyscrapers. Soviet public housing is ugly, though.

I can guess that this is normal practice during performances of foreign (non-Russian) artists. Just like during performances of Russian theatres in London, Paris, etc. Nobody will specially teach English or French for this.

Socialist?

Should this thread be retitled? The architecture is from the "Communist" eras, no?

"Socialist" would still apply to many countries that are "democratic"?

Maybe I've been spending to much time in the United States where "socialism" and "communism" are frequently, inaccurately, conflated?

Yeah, I think you're right. Communist/Stalinist neo-gothic architecture is on this thread.

^ The "beauty" on the right looks very capitalist...

In Lithuania we prefer to say "modernism" regarding (particularly) 1960-1980 architecture rather than apply a term "soc-realism" in terms of architecture from USSR time . Main reason is that architecture in Lithuania were quite different compared to other USSR countries (less gigantomania less soc-realism cannons") due to several reasons : local architects aimed to created own style; strong interwar architectural traditions and in some cases - Nordic influence. Another important thing - common understanding that x building must fit into the environment and do not contradict with natural environment or old architecture.

Some examples:
Union of coopertaives of Lithuania HQ
Lietuvos kooperatyvų sąjungos administracinis pastatas

Date: 1979
Architect: Justinas Šeibokas
Link









Opera and Ballet Theatre in Vilnius.
Date:1963 - 1974
Architect: Elena Nijolė Bučiūtė
Link

1963 project model.





link

Interior




Restaurant's interior.
